The Hanging Bridge Of Bilbao

I've never seen a bridge like the Hanging Bridge of Bilbao in Spain. Officially opened in 1893, it was built by engineer Alberto de Palacio, a disciple of the Frenchman Gustave Eiffel. The bridge transports people and cars across the river Nervión every few minutes.

Middlesbrough, in the north-east of England has a very famous bridge in this style - The Transporter Bridge. Here are a couple of links:
